To tlip Honorable, the Citi/ Council 

of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith 
a copy of the letter of the President 
of The Union Station Company, 
dated September 5th, 1914, asking 
me to call a special meeting of the 
City Council for the purpose of ex- 
tending the time for the acceptance 
by the railroad companies of the 
V ordinances oassed March 23rd, 1914, 



granting' certain privileges neces- 
sary for the construction of the 
proposed new Union Station. 

The financial conditions created 
by the European war are familiar 
to everyone and I therefore respect- 
fully recommend that the request of 
the companies be granted and that 
the ordinances be amended so as to 
extend the time for the companies' 
acceptances and the performance of 
the conditions precedent thereto to 
whatever period of time your Hon- 
orable Body may deem proper. 

Yours respectfully. 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor.

Ho7i. Carter H. Rarrison, Mayor, 

Chicago. Illinois •' 

Dear Sir— The terminal ordi- 
nances passed by the Honorable City 
Council of Chicago on March 23, 
1914, require that they be accepted 
by The Union Station Company and 
the railroad companies named 
therein by September 23, 1914. 

Immediately after the passage of 
the ordinances, steps were taken by 
the Station Company and said rail- 
road companies in preparation for 
the acceptances of said ordinances 
by all the companies concerned and 
to actively proceed with the work 
involved in complying with the 
terms of said ordinances. There- 
upon the necessary steps were taken 
to finance the proposition and were 
progressing favorably to an accept- 
ance of the ordinances by Septem- 
ber 23, 1914, when conditions arose \^ 
resulting from the wars in Europe, 
with which everyone is familiar, 
which made it impossible for the 
companies concerned to at this time 
assume the obligations placed upon 
them by said ordinances. 

Under the circumstances the 
Board of Directors of The .Union 
Station Company finds itself reluc- 
tantly compelled to apply to the City

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, October 5, 191 4. j 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith 
without my approval an ordinance, 
passed by your Honorable Body at 
its last meeting, granting authority 
to the Jacob Best Coal Company to 
construct, maintain and operate a 
switchtrack in the block bounded 
by Granville Avenue, Glenlake Ave- 
nue. Broadway and t>he right-of- 
way of the Chicago, Milwaukee and 
St. Paul Railroad track, for the rea- 



son that residents and property 
owners in Winthrop Avenue and in 
the immediate neighborhood pro- 
test against this switchtrack on the 
grounds that it will result in an in- 
tolerable nuisance in a strictly resi- 
dence district. From the St. Paul 
tracks east the district in question { 
constitutes one of the most desir- 
able residence districts in the city. 
The granting of a switchtrack priv- 
ilege in a district of this character, 
without the insertion of restrictions 
upon the character of the use to 
which it may be put, seems utterly 
unjustifiable. 

While the Best Coal Company is 
entitled to a reasonable use of its 
railroad frontage, it should give 
some guaranty to its neighbors, that 
when the switchtrack shall have 
been installed, it shall not be used 
for any purpose which would re- 
sult in creating a public nuisance. 

I would, therefore, respectfully 
recommend that the vote by which 
the ordinance was passed be re- 
considered and that the ordinance 
be re-referred to the committee 
from which it came, in order that 
the necessary provisions may be in- 
serted, restricting the uses to 
which the switchtrack shall be put 
and properly safeguarding the 
neighborhood. 

Yours respectfully,

passed by your Honorable Body al 
its last regular meeting, granting 
rights to the Chicago City Railway 
Company in Lake Avenue from 47th 
Street to 55th Street, for the reason 
that I have been petitioned by prac- 
tically all of the property owners 
in Lake Avenue from 47th Street 
to 50th Street to withhold my ap- 
proval from this ordinance. 

For years the Chicago City Rail- 
way Company has been seeking 
rights in this street, the reason, as 
it" is generally understood, being 
that traction policy favors the clos- 
ing of all prominent highways to 
possible use by competitive lines. 
Lake Avenue, moreover, at the ap- 
propriate hour may be found to fur- 
nish a new and highly desirable 
method of entering the downtown 
district. There has been for some 
time a movement to open Lake Ave- 
nue through Douglas Monument 
Park, Groveland Park and Wood- 
land Park in order that, when the 
contract between the Illinois Central 
Railroad and the South Park Com- 
missioners, dealing with the lake 
front settlement, is considered by 
the City of Chicago, valid grounds 
may be available to force the open- 
ing of Lake Avenue alongside of the 
railroad right-of-way and connect- 
ing with Indiana Avenue, that a new 
downtown street railroad entrance 
may be opened up. 

If the present ordinance stands, 
it will only be a question of time 
when further traction rights in Lake 
avenue from 47th street north will 
be demanded, until finally the entire 
street shall have been given over to 
^ the Chicago City Railway Company. 
^^ Lake Avenue from 50th Street 
BL south is an undesirable business 
^K street, from 50th Street north it 
^B forms a residence street of high 
^m character and long standing. The 
^B effort to place a street railway in 
^B this street is sought first by the 
^B Chicago City Railway Company it- 
^B self for the reasons which I have 
^B given, and secondly by property 



50th Street, who are anxious to en- 
hance the value of their own realty 
holdings, even though by so doing 
they may destroy the property of 
their neighbors. 

The specious plea is made that 
this proposal is merely the result 
of natural growth and develop- 
ment and that residence districts 
must give way before the advance 
of business. It is only two years 
ago that your Honorable Body sent 
to Springfield and urged the pas- 
sage of a law to protect residence 
streets and residence districts from 
the unfair encroachment of busi- 
ness. The time will probably come, 
perhaps not in the distant future, 
when the character of Lake Avenue 
will have so changed, that a fran- 
chise right of this character may 
be granted, without practically de- 
stroying the property of many citi- 
zens. At the present time, however, 
one-third of that part of the street 
affected is absolutely opposed to the 
granting of this franchise and in 
simple justice to them I feel their 
protest should be heeded.

The following communication: 

Office op the Mayor,} 
Chicago, October 5, 191 4. J 

To the Honorable, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 

GentlexMen— I herewith hand 
you a communication from the 
Harbor and Subway Gommission 
addressed to you and myself, to- 
gether with three ordinances in- 
tended to accomplish the requests 
contained in said communication. 

Two of the ordinances in ques- 
tion authorize the performance of 
work and furnishing of material in 
connection with the construction of 
pier No. 2 in harbor district No. 1. 

One of these ordinances au- 
thorizes the payment, out of the 
harbor bond fund, of the sum of 
$796.70 to Ogden, Sheldon & Com- 
pany, as the public benefit, occas- 
ioned by certain paving to be done 
by Ogden, Sheldon & Company in 
Illinois street. One of the other 
ordinances simply ratifies the ac- 
tion of the Harbor and Subway 
Gommission in substituting one va- 
riety of anchor rod for another 
called for in the specifications, so 
far as about 10 per cent of the rods 
to be used is concerned. The value 
of the two kinds of rods is about 
the same; if any difference, the 
substituted rod is more costly than 
the one specified. 

The third ordinance authorizes: 
First, A fill where a depression 
was originally contemplated. This 
work will cost about $25,000 and 
will be a saving to the city of a 
considerable sum over the plan oris:^ 
inally contemplatel. 

Second. Certain repairs to a 
pier given by Ogden, Sheldon & 
Company to the city are authorized 
in order to put the pier in ser- 
viceable condition. The cost there- 
of is estimated at $20,000.

COMMUN ICATION S, ETC.

Third There is authorized the 
filling in of the lake of a strip about 
1 100 feet long and 400 feet wide 
contiguous on the north to Grand 
avenue and the approach to the 
pier in question. The draft of the 
ordinance limits the expenditure m 
this particular to $200,000. 

I believe that these expenditures 
should be authorized without solic- 
iting bids, because io solicit bids 
would delay the work to such an 
extent that it could not be com- 
pleted before the working season 
closes for the winter and the city 
is protected on all of the work by 
the proviso that it shall be done 
at the unit prices specified m the 
contract of the Great Lakes Dredge 
& Dock Company, and as to that 
contract, bids were solicited and the 
lowest bid accepted. 

Yours respectfully,

The following communication was 
transmitted witlh the foregoing com- 
munication : 

HARBOR AND SUBWAY GOMMISSIONJ 

CHICAGO, October 2, 1914.| 
To the Honorable, the Mayor and 
the Council of the City of Chica- 
go, City Hall, Chicago, Illinois: 
Gentlemen— In connection with 
the prosecution of the work of con- 
structing Pier No. 2 m Harbor Dis- 
trict No 1, we have found it advis- 
able, in our judgment, to make cer 
tain changes in the plan originally 
adopted, whi€h changes are as fol- 
lows: 

1 Instead of depressing the side j 
portions adjoining the roadway ^ to 
the extent of 4V2 feet below the 
level of the roadway for the purpose 
of enabling us to construct a cod 
storage basement, we now hnd it 
necessary to flU that portion which 
we had intended to depress, to bring 
the level thereof about 2 feet above 
the level of the roadway. 

This change is occasioned by rea- 
son of the fact that we have been 



compelled to abandon the idea oJ 
constructing a cold storage base- 
ment owing to the fact that the con- 
struction thereof would delay the 
work of completing the pier sev- 
eral months; that there was serious 
question of whether the basement 
could be constructed so as to ren- 
der it waterproof; and the further 
fact that there was a very great 
doubt if the basement, when con- 
structed, could be rented advantage- 

ouslv 

The estimated cost of the cold 
storage basement was approximately 
$300 000, and the cost of this addi- 
tional fill will amount to approxi- 
mately $25,000, making a net saving 
between the two methods of con- 
struction of about $275,000 in favor 
of the fill. 

2. As part of the approach to 
the pier in question, the City ac- 
quired certain land from Ogden, 
Sheldon & Company, who gave to 
the City a certain pier contiguous to 
a portion of the land purchased. 
The City will have much use for this 
pier, but it is not in a state of good 
repair, and we, therefore, propose 
to put it in a state of good repair 
by expending in so doing the sum ol, 
not to exceed, $20,000. 

3 We have obtained permission 
from the Lincoln Park Board, and 
have applied to the Federal Govern- 
ment for a like permission, to fill a 
strip about 1,100 feet long and 400 
r.H4. wide, lying east of the Lake 
Shore Drive and contiguous to Grand 
avenue and the approach to the 
pier in question on the north. The 
cost of this fill will be approxi- 
1 mately $200,000. 

The purpose of making this fill 
is to enable us to extend the Lake 
Shore Drive and Ohio street to con- 
nect up with the pier and make a 
return drive from the pier back to 
'M. streets above mentioned, leav- 
ing a parkway between the two 
drives 

4 There are two streets leading 
to the pier. Grand avenue ^and Il- 
linois street. Ogden, Sheldon .v

COAIMUNIGATIONS, ETC.

Company is the owner of the prop- 
erty abutting on Illinois street at a 
point where paving is necessary. 
Ogden. Sheldon & Company has 
offered to pave this portion of Illi- 
nois street at a cost of approxi- 
mately $13,305 if the City will pay 
as its share of such expense, on 
account of the public benefits, the 
sum of -$796.70. 

We believe that this is a very 
fair proposition on the part of Og- 
den. Sheldon & Company and that 
it should be accepted. The Board 
of Local Improvements have esti- 
mated the cost of this paving to be 
$16,700 and that on such a basis 
the City should pay toward the cost 
of such paving the sum of $1,000. 

5. The specifications pursuant to 
which the contract w^as let for the 
construction of the pier, called for 
wrought iron anchor rods, double- 
rolled from muck bar. withoTit the 
admixture of scrap. Owing to 
an error of the contractor in 
procuring a number, amounting to 
less than ten per cent of the num- 
ber required for the pier, of stand- 
ard dock rods made of mild steel, 
we have, subject to your approval, 
authorized their use. The remain- 
der of the rods are of the character 
of those specified. The steel rods 
cost slightly more than those speci- 
fied and are substantially as good so 
far as utility is concerned. 

We ask your authority to make 
the changes herein referred to and 
your approval of our action con- 
cerning the rods. 

Ver>' respectfully, 
Harbor and Subway Commission, 
( Signed ^ E. C. Shankland, 

Chairman.

consideration of the ordinances

ALSO, 

The following communication: 
Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, October 5, 1914.( 
To the Honorable, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 
Gentlemen— I transmit herewith 
an ordinance amending an ordinance 
passed July 2nd, 1914, authorizing 
contracts with the railroads con- 
cerned for the construction of a 
new viaduct at East and West 
Twelfth street (see Council Jour- 
nal, pages 1295 to 1305, inclusive), 
and recommend the passage there- 
of. 

The amendatory ordinance is 
identical with the ordinance of 
July 2nd, with the following ex- 
ceptions : ^ 

The word "Railway,'' in the 11th 
line of the first section (page 1295), 
is changed to "Railroad." 

The second section is eliminated, 
owing to the fact that the per- 
centages have been agreed upon. 



What appears at page 1295 as 
"Section 3" becomes "Section 2.' 

The words, on page 1297, appear- 
in- in the 6th line of the righi- 
ha^nd column (Section 2), "except as 
expressly herein undertaken. Pro- 
vided, however, that if said Railway 
Companies shall not be able to 
agree among themselves as to the 
ratio of payments to be made by 
them severally, then said com- 
panies shall be jointly liable to pay 
to said City said sum of $/9l.- 
350 00" are eliminated, and there 
is inserted in lieu thereof the fol- 
lowing: "It is understood and 
agreed that the Rock Island and 
Lake Shore Companies shall have 
the right at any time prior to March 
1 1915 to reapportion as between 
themselves the percentages and 
amounts of their respective con- 
tributions as in this section pro- 
vided. Such reapportionment shall 
not alter or affect the combined 
percentage or amount above speci- 
fied to be contributed m the ag- 
gregate by the said Rock Island and 
Lake Shore Companies, nor shall 
the change in Percentage exceed 
five per centum (5%) of the total 
contributions to be made by said 
railway companies. In the event 
that said Rock Island and Lake 
Shore Companies desire to reap- 
portion the percentages and respec- 
tive amounts by them m this sec- 
tion assumed, they shall serve the 
City with notice thereof m writing 
not later than March 1, 1915, which 
said notice shall state the new Per- 
centages and amounts for wln^^^^!^^ 
Rock Island and I^^ke Shore Com- 
panies shall be severally liable. In 
the event of the service of said 
notice, the percentages therein con- 
tained shall apply also to the con- 
tributions to be made by each ®f 
the said Railway Companies to the 
maintenance expenses of the via- 
duct as provided in Sections 5 and 
6 of this agreement." 

\fter the word "Companies," on 
the 17th line of the right hand 
column, on page 1297 (Section 3'. 



October 5. 191 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1433 



there is added "severally payable 
by them." 

The words, ''the pavement and 
sdewalks upon all of the approaches 
to the said viaduct," beginning on 
the 27th line of the right hand 
column of page 1298 (Section 6), 
are stricken out, and there is in- 
serted in lieu thereof the words : 
"all of the approaches to said 
viaduct and the pavement and 
sidewalks thereon." 

After the word "as," on the 4th 
line of the right hand column of 
page 1299 (Section 10-, there is in- 
serted the article "a." 

After the word "thereon," on the 
2nd line of the left hand column of 
page 1300 (Section 11), there is 
added the words: "and therein." 

After Section 12 of the contract, 
which is Exhibit 1 to the ordinance, 
there is added a new section, num- 
bered "13," which will be found on 
page 12 of the draft of the amend- 
atory ordinance. This new section 
provides that if the companies at 
any time hereafter move their 
tracks south of Twelfth street and 
do not occupy the surface of that 
street they shall thereupon be re- 
lieved of the liability to contribute 
to the maintenance of the viaduct. 

All sectional references, other 
than those which occur on page 
1295, are references to the sections 
of Exhibit 1 to the ordinance, which 
is the contract authorized to be 
executed. 

This Twelfth street project has 
been delayed for various reasons 
for a considerable time, and it is 
t[^ therefore quite important that the 
amendatory ordinance herewith 
presented be disposed of speedily. 

Yours respectfully, 
^Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Unanimous consent was given for 
consideration of the ordinance 
transmitted with the foregoing 
communication.

EXHIBIT 1. 
This Agreement, entered into 

^his day of • •» 

A d! 1914, bv and between the City 
of Chicago, hereinafter called the 
"City," party of the first part, and 
The Chicago Rock Island & Pacific 
Railway Company, hereinafter 
called the "Rock Island," The Lake 
Shore & Michigan Southern Railway 
Company, hereinafter called the 
"Lake Shore," the Atchison, Topeka 
& Santa Fe Railway Company, here- 
'inafter called the "Santa Fe," the 
Grand Trunk Western Railway Com- 
pany, hereinafter called the "Grand 
Trunk." and the Chicago & Western 
Indiana Railroad Company, herein- 
after called the "Western Indiana," 
parties of the second part, (said 
parties of the second part collec- 
tively being hereinafter referred to 
as the "Railway Companies"'. 

Witnesseth: The City is pro- 
posing to widen East and West 
Twelfth street in the City of Chi- 
cago from its present width of 
sixtv-six feet to a width of 118 feet, 
said widening to extend from a 
point west of the Chicago River to a 
point east of State street. The 
Railway Companies own, maintain 
and operate railway tracks extend- 
ing across said West Twelfth street. 
The City proposes to replace the 
present viaduct on East and West 
Twelfth street with a new viaduct 
extending from the Chicago River 
to a point in the vicinity of Wabash 
avenue, the proposed viaduct to oc- 
cupy the full width of the street as 
widened, or 118 feet. A dispute has 
arisen between the City and the 
Railway Companies as to the divi- 
sion between the City and the Rail- 
way Companies of the cost of con- 



struction of the proposed new 118 
foot viaduct, including the ap- 
proaches thereto, and the cost of 
the maintenance thereof m the 
future, the City demanding that the 
Railway Companies construct the 
said new viaduct on the street as 
widened at their own sole cost and 
expense, and the Railway Companies 
contending that there is not at this 
time a necessity for a new viaduct 
and that the Railway Companies 
are under no obligation to replace 
the present structure or approaches. 
In compromising the said dispute 
the Railway Companies have sever- 
ally agreed to contribute the sums 
of money hereinafter set forth, and 
the City upon its part has assumed 
the obligation as in this agreement 
specified. 

Now, Therefore, in consideration 
of the premises, and of the mutual 
and dependent covenants in this 
agreement hereinafter set forth, the 
parties hereto have contracted and 
do by these presents contract to and 
with each other as follows: 

1. The City agrees to construct 
upon the present and proposed East 
and West Twelfth street, as 
widened, a viaduct 118 feet wide, 
extending from the Chicago River 
to a point in the vicinity of Wabash 
avenue, with approaches thereto, 
as shown by the plans hereinafter 
referred to. The viaduct shall be 
constructed substantially in accor- 
dance with the plans attached to 
this agreement and made a part 
hereof as Exhibit "A" hereto. The 
said original plans are identified by 
the signatures of the City Bridge 
Engineer and the Commissioner of 
Public Works. The construction 
of the viaduct shall begin immedi- 
ately upon the acquisition by the 
City of right of way for the pro- 
posed widening of East and West 
Twelfth street, and the construc- 
tion of a new bridge across the 
Chicago River at West Twelfth 
street, and shall proceed to com- 
pletion in accordance with said 



October 5, 1914.

plans and specifications as rapidly 
as practicable. 

The Railway Companies may make 
such change in location and align- 
ment of their present tracks in 
streets and alleys adjacent to East 
and West Twelfth street as may be 
rendered necessary by the location 
of the piers as shown upon the 
plans marked Exhibit "A," but noth- 
ing herein contained shall be taken 
or held to be a grant to said Rail- 
way Companies, or any or either of 
them, of any additional right or 
rights in or to any such public 
street or alley. 

The Railway Companies shall 
have the right, prior to the begin- 
ning of the work of construction of 
the foundations of said viaduct, to 
require the City to make moderate 
changes in the location of the said 
piers as shown by Exhibit "A," 
where the same shall be found 
necessary or desirable, and pro- 
vided that such changes shall not 
materially increase the cost of the 
structure. 

It is further understood and 
agreed that should any of the Rail- 
way Companies desire to have the 
part of said viaduct adjacent to its 
property constructed upon caisson 
foundations beneath said piers, the 
City will cause said caissons to be 
constructed, provided that the Rail- 
way Company requesting the same 
shall pay any additional cost rend- 
ered necessary thereby. 

The City in letting its contract or 
contracts for the construction of 
said viaduct shall provide that any 
of the Railway Companies may have 
the right to elect at any time before 
the beginning of the work of con- 
structing the foundations, whether 
it will require caisson foundations 
constructed as aforesaid or not, and 
to this end the City shall give each 
of the Railway Companies not less 
than sixty (60) nor more than 
ninety (90) days' notice of the time 
when the construction of the foun- 



dations for said viaduct adjacent to 
its property will begin. 

2. The Railway Companies agree 
to pay to the City toward the cost 
of construction of the said viaduct 
and approaches sums aggregating 
seven hundred ninety-one thousand,

W. Indiana, 38.245%.. 302,651.81 



Total 100.00% $791,350.00 

The obligation assumed by each 
of the Railway Companies in res- 
pect to said payment or any 
other payment in this agreement 
mentioned is its several obligation, 
and nothing herein contained shall 
render any Railway Company liable 
to make any payment for or on be- 
half of any other Railway Company. 
It is understood and agreed that 
the Rock Island and Lake Shore 
Companies shall have the right at 
any time prior to March 1, 1915, 
to reapportion as between them- 
selves the percentages and amounts 
of their respective contributions as 
in this section provided. Such reap- 
portionment shall not alter or affect 
the combined percentage or amount 
above specified to be contributed 
in the aggregate by the said Rock 
Island and Lake Shore Companies, 
nor shall the change in percentage 
exceed five per centum (5%) of the 
total contributions to be made by 
said railway companies. In the 
event that said Rock Island and 
Lake Shore Companies desire to re- 
apportion the percentages and re- 
spective amounts by them in this 
section assumed, they shall serve 
the City with notice thereof in writ- 
ing not later than March 1, 1915, 
which said notice shall state the 
new percentages and amounts for 
which the Rock Island and Lake 
Shore Companies shall he severally

each of the said Railway Companies 
to the maintenance expenses of the 
viaduct as provided in Sections 5 
and 6 of this agreement.

of the Railway Companies several- 
ly payable by them, toward the 
construction of said viaduct shall 
be paid during the progress of the 
work. Said money to be paid as 
follows: Eighty-five per cent of 
the proportion of the cost of said 
work, chargeable to the Railway 
Companies, computed upon actual 
payments as therefor indicated by 
monthly certificates relative there-

of Public Works of the City. At 
least fifteen per cent of the contri- 
butions provided for by the Rail- 
way Companies in Section 2 hereof, 
shall be retained to be paid to the 
City on the basis of the above per- 
centages upon final completion of 
the viaduct, in accordance with the 
plans and specification contained in 
Exhibit "A" and the acceptance 
thereof by the City. 

4. Nothing in this agreement 
contained shall be construed to re- 
quire the Railway Companies, or 
any of them to pay damages to ad- 
jacent property caused by the con- 
struction or maintenance of the 
said viaduct, or any approach or 
approaches thereto, or by excava- 
tion, elevation, depression or change 
of grade made in any of the public 
avenues, streets or alleys by reason 
thereof, or to defend any suit or 
suits which may be brought by or 
against any party or parties for the 
fecovery of such damages; but all 
such damages, if there be any, shall 
be adjusted and paid by the City 
and the City will assume the de- 
fense of any and all suits brought 
for the recovery of the same, inter- 
vening therein, if necessary, for 



the purpose, and will wholly relieve 
the Railway Companies, and each 
of them, from defending the same, 
and will assume and pay all judg- 
ments recovered therein. Tn case 
any suit be brought against any of 
the Railway Companies said com- 
pany will, providing it has been 
served with proper summons, at 
least five days before the return day 
in said suit, give notice in writing 
of such suit and such service to the 
Mayor and Corporation Counsel of 
the City. 

The Railway Companies, however, 
and each of them hereby expressly 
waive all claims for damages to any 
property now belonging to the Rail- 
way Companies, or hereafter ac- 
quired by them, or any of them, 
caused by reason of the construc- 
tion or maintenance of the said 
viaduct or approaches. 

Nothing in this section contained, 
however, shall be considered as a 
waiver by the Railway Companies, 
or any of them, of claims for 
damages for property taken or 
damaged by the City for the pur- 
pose of the proposed widening of 
the said street. 

5. The city agrees to maintain at 
its sole expense the entire viaduct 
and all approaches thereto for a 
period of ten years from and after 
the final completion and acceptance 
thereof by the City. After the ex- 
piration of said ten years, the total 
expense of maintaining the viaduct 
structure proper (after first deduct- 
ing therefrom the amount of such 
expense paid by any street railway 
company which may be operating 
its cars over the said viaduct) shall 
be divided between the City and 
the Railway Companies upon the 
basis of thirty-four one-hundred- 
eighteenths (34-118) of said ex- 
pense to the City and eighty-four 
one-hundred-eighteenths (84-118) 
thereof to the Railway Companies. 
The actual work of maintenance 
shall be performed by the City, and 
the Railway Companies, their re-

spective successors and assigns, 
agree severally to contribute eighty- 
four one-hundred-eighteenths (84- 
118 thereof, to be apportioned 
among them, respectively, upon the 
percentages set out in Section 2 
hereof, and each of the Railway 
Companies agrees promptly to pay 
to the City, upon receipt of bill 
therefor, its proportionate percent- 
age of said eighty-four one-hun- 
dred-eighteenths (84-118) of said 
maintenance expenses, as shown by 
the table of percentages contained 
in Section 2 of this agreement. 

6. After the expiration of the 
ten-vear period mentioned in Sec- 
tion 5 hereof, the City shall, at its 
own cost and expense, maintain all 
of the approaches to said viaduct 
and the pavement and sidewalks 
thereon. After the expiration of 
said ten-year period the expense of 
maintenance of the sidewalks and 
pavement on the viaduct proper 
(after deducting therefrom the pro- 
portion of same which is paid by 
any street railway company operat- 
ing its cars upon the viaduct, shall 
be divided between the City and the 
Railway Companies in the same 
manner as the expense of mainten- 
ance of the viaduct structure, as 
provided in Section 5 hereof. 

7. The City agrees that it will 
never restrict, or be a party to any 
ordinance or other proceeding re- 
stricting the character of the traf- 
fic w^hich shall be permitted to pass 
on or upon or over the said viaduct 
a-nd approaches. 

8. Each of the Railway Com- 
panies owns certain property in 
the vicinity of the proposed via- 
duct. The City will permit any 
Railway Company, party hereto, to 
make a connection between the via- 
duct and its property at any point 
on the said viaduct where said 
Railway Company may own adja- 
cent property, and such connection 
shall be for the use only of traf- 
fic going to and from the property 
of the Railway Company request- 



ing same. Such connection shall be 
of a character and design in keep- 
ing with the character of the struc- 
ture of the viaduct, but nothing in 
this section contained shall be con- 
strued as requiring the City to bear 
any portion of the cost or expense 
of maintaining any such connection 
unless the same shall be used for 
the purpose of ordinary street traf- 
fic. In event of the dedication and 
acceptance by the City Council of 
the City of any such connection to 
public travel or ordinary street 
traffic, the City agrees that it will 
compensate the owner of such 
structure for the use of the same 
according to the laws of the State 
of Illinois. 

9. The work of removing the 
present viaduct and of constructing 
the proposed viaduct and ap- 
proaches shall be done by the City 
in such a manner as not unneces- 
sarily to inconvenience, impede, 
hinder or obstruct the traffic of the 
Railway Companies, or any of them. 
The City agrees to protect and hold 
harmless the Railway Companies, 
and each of them, against, of and 
from all claims or demands for in- 
jury to or death of any of the City's 
employes, contractors, agents, or 
their employes, or any claims or 
demands whatsoever for loss, dam- 
age or injury to persons or prop- 
ety arising or growing out of the 
removal of the present viaduct, or 
construction of the proposed via- 
duct and approaches, except injury, 
loss or damage occasioned by or 
through the sole negligence of the 
Railway Company against which 
claim shall be made. 

10. Nothing in this agreement 
contained shall be construed as a 
grant to the City by the Railway 
Companies, or any of them, of right- 
of way for the proposed widening 
of East and West Twelfth street, 
nor as a grant of an easement for 
the construction of the said viaduct 
over any portion of the property of 
the Railway Companies, or any of 



1438

them; nor as a license to the City 
to enter upon the property of the 
Railway Companies, or any portion 
thereof, for any purpose whatso- 
ever, except for the removal of the 
present viaduct and for the con- 
struction of a new viaduct upon 
land now owned or hereafter ac- 
quired for the construction thereof. 
Nor shall anything in this agree- 
ment contained be construed as a 
waiver by any of the Railway Com- 
panies of its claim or claims for 
compensation or damage on account 
of the taking or appropriation of 
property for the widening of said 
street or viaduct, it being the inten- 
tion of this agreement that the City 
shall acquire any property neces- 
sary for such purpose, whether 
from the Railway Companies, or 
others, by purchase or condemna- 
tion. 

11. Nothing in this agreement 
contained shall be construed as a 
surrender or impairment of the 
present rights of the Railway Com- 
panies, or any of them, to the oc- 
cupancy of the present East and 
West Twelfth street with their rail- 
way tracks, or as a waiver of any 
right or rights which they or any 
of them, may possess to lay their 
tracks across, upon, along or over 
the said East and West Twelfth

or as it shall be when the City shall 
complete the proposed widening 
thereof. The right of each of the 
Railway Companies to maintain its 
existing tracks, buildings, struc- 
tures and appliances underneath the 
said viaduct is fully recognized and 
confirmed, and each of the Railway 
Companies shall have the right to 
extend over said street underneath 
said viaduct additional tracks with- 
in its adjacent right of way as ex- 
tended thereover, and to place

structures and appliances as it may 
deem necessary or advisable; pro- 
vided such buildings or structures 
shall not interfere with the free use 



of said viaduct by the said City or 
the public; 

Provided, further, however, tiiat 
in any condemnation proceeding 
which has been or may hereafter be 
instituted by the City to acquire 
additional property to be used in 
widening East and West Twelfth 
street across the property of the 
Railway Companies, nothing here- 
in contained shall preclude any 
party hereto from setting up any 
right, if any, which may be con- 
ferred by the terms of this agree- 
ment, to construct or maintain any 
tracks, buildings or structures be- 
neath said East and West Twelfth 
street viaduct as completed. 

12. Effective upon the construc- 
tion and completion of the said via- 
duct, all contracts now existing be- 
tween the City and the Railway 
Companies, or any of them, rela- 
tive to the maintenance of the 
structure of the present viaduct in 
East and West Twelfth street, and 
approaches thereto, shall be and the 
same are hereby abrogated and 
canceled; 

Provided, however, that the Fifth 
avenue viaduct or approach as now 
constructed and existing at the in- 
tersection of said Fifth avenue and

be taken or considered to be an ap- 
proach to said East and West 
Twelfth street viaduct, but shall be 
taken and considered to be a struc- 
ture separate and apart from said 
East and West Twelfth street via- 
duct. 

13. In the event that the Santa 
Fe, the Grand Trunk and the West- 
ern Indiana Companies, or their

To the Honorable, the City Council

Gentlemen — On May 11, 1914, 
(page 182 of the Council Journal of 
that date) an ordinance was intro- 
duced and referred to the Commit- 
tee on Local Transportation, (which 
provided for the vacation of an or- 
der passed July 13, 1908, and ap- 
pearing in the Council Journal of said 
date at pages 1168 and 1169, which 
gave the Chicago and Oak Park 
Elevated Railroad Company a tem- 
porary right to use its elevated road

on Market street from Madison 
street to Lake street.) The ordi- 
nance also contained a provision for 
the termination of all rights of said 
elevated road in South Market 
street from Madison to Lake streets. 
Numerous hearings on this ordi- 
nance were had before the Com- 
mittee on Local Transportation, and 
at every hearing it was the sense 
of the committee that it should 
recommend for passage not only 
the order aforesaid, but that por- 
tion of the ordinance revoking the 
termination of all of the company's 
rights in the street. 

Nevertheless, in its report to the 
Council, the Committee on Local 
Tlransportation only recommended 
for passage an ordinance revoking 
the order of July 13, 1908, and the 
ordinance as recommended was, on 
July 2, 1914, passed by a unanimous 
vote of the Council, but no report 
was made on the ordinance provid- 
ing for the termination of the com- 
pany's rights or license of r>aid 
elevated railroad on said street. 

I therefore submit and recom- 
mend the passage of an ordinance 
terminating all rights of the Chica- 
go and Oak Park Elevated Railroad 
in Market street from West Madi- 
son street to West Lake street, 
which is the remaining portion of 
the ordinance introduced on May 
11, 1914. 

Inasmuch as the ordinance here- 
with submitted has been thoroughly 
considered by your Committee on 
Local Transportation, I respectfully 
recommend its passage without un- 
due delay. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Unanimous consent was given for 
consideration of the ordinance 
transmitted with the foregoing com- 
munication.

elevated tracks Market street from 
the south line of the present ele- 
vated railroad of said company in 
Lake street to the south line of 
Madison street forever cease and 
determine. 

Section 2. The Corporation 
Counsel of the City of Chicago is 
hereby authorized and directed to 
take such action as he may deem 
fit and proper to enforce the fore- 
going section and to cause Chicago 
and Oak Park Elevated Railroad 
Company to remove all of its eleva- 
ted structure from that portion of 
Market street described in the fore- 
going section. 

Section 3. This ordinance shall 
take effect from and after its pas-

subsequently amended, and having 
notified the City of Chicago that it

The Municipal Court of Chicago,| 
Chicago, September 11, 191 4. ( 
To the Honorable, the Mayor and 
City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — From my experience 
as presiding Judge at the Maxwell 
Street Court for the past four 
months, I am firmly convinced that 
the minimum fine of $20.00 for vio- 
lation of Section 1760 of the City 
Code is too severe and ought to be 
eliminated. This ordinance deals 
solely with peddlers. 

I respectfully recommend that 
tJie ordinance so read that violators 
may be fined in any sum from $1.00 



to $50.00, thereby giving the Judge 
an opportunity to fine any sum 
ranging from $1.00 up. The princi- 
pal violators of this ordinance are 
very poor people. 

Yery respectfully yours, 
(Signed) John R. Caverly, 

Judge of the Municipal Court. 

ALSO, 

The following communication, 
which was, together with the order 
transmitted therewith, referred to 
the Committee on Finance: 

Office op the Mayor,| 
Chicago, October 5, 1914. ( 
To the Honorable, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 
Gentlemen — I transmit herewith 
and recommend the passage of an 
order dismissing the case of City 
of Chicago v. Chicago, Rock Island 
and Pacific Railway Company, Cir- 
cuit Court, General No. 315980. 

I make this recommendation be- 
cause of the attitude assumed by 
the Rock Island Railway Company 
in entering into the contract with 
reference to the widening of East 
and West Twelfth street and the 
constructing of a new viaduct there- 
in, a project which I deem a great 
public benefit. 

For your information I will state 
that the Rock Island Railway Com- 
pany was by a contract obligated to 
repair what is known as the Fifth 
avenue viaduct; that owing to the 
heavier type of street cars being 
used on the viaduct the city pre- 
pared a design of construction to 
be followed in the repairing of the 
Fifth avenue viaduct which called 
for a heavier type of construction 
than was originally employed in the 
erection of the viaduct. The com- 
pany contended that inasmuch as 
the purpose of employing the heav- 
ier and more expensive type of con- 
struction was to benefit the street 
railway companies it was not obli- 
gated to adopt the heavier form ol 
construction in making repairs, but 
was only liable to make the repairs 



October 5, 1914. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1443 



on the basis of the original type of 
construction. The city took the op- 
posite view of the company's lia- 
bility. 

In order to facilitate the repair- 
ing of the viaduct, an agreement 
was entered into, by the terms of 
which the company was to make 
the repairs at once, in accordance 
with the heavier type of construc- 
tion and the city was to pay one- 
fourth of the cost thereof, not to 
exceed, however, the sum of $10,- 
000.00. In this contract the city 
reserved to itself the right to test 
out the liability of the company to 
pay the entire cost of repairing the 
viaduct, by a suit to recover the 
$10,000.00 advanced as one-fourth 
of the cost of the repairs. Pursuant 
to this reservation the suit above 
referred to was started and is now 



pending and undisposed of. 

I am advised by the law depart- 
ment that the question involved in 
this case is a close one and might 
be decided by the courts either way. 

The Rock Island insisted that this 
suit be dismissed before it signed its 
Twelfth street viaduct contract, but 
finally agreed to waive the dismis- 
sal as a condition precedent if I 
would recommend to your Honor- 
able Body that an order be passed 
directing the Corporation Counsel to 
dismiss said suit, which under all 
the circumstances I am pleased to 
do. 

I respectfully recommend that 
said order be referred to the Com- 
mittee on Finance. 

Yours respectfully,

Mayor.

proclamation. 



Mayor's Office,] 
Chicago, October 1, 191 4. { 

The loss by fire in our State, de- 
spite all the advances in the 
knowledge of fire -fighting, has in- 
creased from $12,193,044.00 in 1912 
to more than $13,000,000 in 1913. 
A large percentage of this loss has 
been in the City of Chicago. 

Because of this enormous loss 
and because also it has entailed the 
loss of many lives, a day has been 
set apart annually which is known 
as Fire Prevention Day. On that 
day it is urged that all good citi- 
zens give their attention to such 
means as may be taken to lessening 
the hazard from fire, to take such 
steps as may be possible to safe- 
guard the homes and buildings in 
their charge from fire, and to re- 
move all rubbish, trash and waste 
from their premises. 

By the authority vested in me I 
hereby proclaim Friday, October 9, 
1914, as Fire Prevention Day and 
urge upon all citizens an observance 



of the purposes of the day. I hope 
that school and other officials in- 
terested in public welfare will direct 
the attention of their charges to the 
day and explain its purposes. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor.

To the Honorable Carter H. Har- 

risony Mayor, and Aldermen in 

City Council Assembled: 

Gentlemen — I have the honor to 
submit herewith a report of the 
Electric Bureau of the Department 
of Public Service. 

The work of this bureau is in 
charge of Supervisor C. E. Schutt, 
who has had many years' experience 
as consulting engineer in the elec- 
trical field. He has done expert 
work for municipalities in Indiana 
and Ohio, and has had operating ex- 
perience in several utility compan- 
ies. I consider the results accom- 
plished by Mr. Schutt during the 
summer to be very important. 

His defense of the interests of 
the people of Chicago in connection ,^ 
with the electric rules proposed to 
be issued by the State Public Util- 
ities Commission of Illinois was 
very ably conducted before the 
Commission on July 16th last. 

An ordinance covering the testing 
of electric meters is submitted in 
the report and has been referred to 
your Committee on Gas, Oil and 
Electric Light, for action. 

A valuable public service is being 
rendered in the work of service in- 



October 5, 1914.

spectioii with the result that a 
knowledge of the application of 
rates and the quality of service is 
being obtained wiiich could not be 
secured in any other way. 

The ordinance provisions affect- 
ing rates and charges of the Com- 
monwealth Edison Company are be- 
ing enforced as they are brought to 
our attention through the medium 
of complaints and the statistical 
work is being carefully carried for- 
ward. 

Certain matters relating to ex- 
tension of conduits and pole lines 
and other miscellaneous questions 
arising from complaints will be 
brought to the attention of your 
Honorable Body through the proper 
committees.

Chicago, October 5, 1914. ( 
To the Honorable Carter H. Har- 
rison, and the Aldermen in City 
Council Assembled: 
Gentlemen — I have the honor to 
submit herewith a report covering 
the work of the Gas Bureau, a di- 
vision within the Department of 
Public Service in charge of Mr. B. 
M. Ferguson. 

Mr. Ferguson has had nine years' 
experience in gas operation, both in 
the manufacture and distribution. 
He has first hand knowledge of all 
the phases of gas production, gain- 
ed by actual experience in the dif- 
ferent departments of a gas plant. 
Mr. Ferguson has helped to show 
the Detroit City Gas Company how 
to operate their plant efficiently 
and can speak as an expert in con- 
nection with our dealings with the 
Peoples Gas Light and Coke Com- 
pany. His ability as an executive 



has given me material assistance 
in organizing a live gas bureau. 

This Bureau is an outgrowth, as 
you know, of the City Gas Inspec- 
tion Bureau established by Section 
1014 of The Chicago Code of 1911, 
the work of which was so ably con- 
ducted by Mr. W. D. Wilcox for 
several years. Through the efforts 
of Mr. Wilcox the ordinance refer- 
red to in the text of this report, re- 
quiring the periodic inspection of 
meters, was passed July 2d, 1914. 

The Gas Bureau is now equipped 
to do the work on a somewhat larg- 
er scale than heretofore, and owing 
to the importance of the gas situa- 
tion in Chicago has been very ac- 
tive during the past three months 
in all branches of its work. 

Mr. Ferguson's report is given 
herewith in full. 

Respectfully submitted,

Department of Public Service,} 
Chicago, October 5, 191 4. ( 
To the Honorable Carter H. Har- 
rison, Mayor, and Aldermen in 
City Council Assembled: 
Gentlemen - — Complaints from 
many sources resulting from the 
congestion due to vehicle, street 
car and pedestrian traffic, has made 
necessary an investigation into the 
traffic conditions in the intense 
business center of this and other 
cities. I have the honor to submit 
herewith the information obtained 
relating to street traffic and its reg- 
ulation. Also a compilation of ve- 
hicle traffic in Chicago and other 
cities land some computations of 
operating costs of taxicabs and oth- 
er vehicles. 

Itjs quite evident that scientific 
management must be applied to the 
regulation of traffic if there is to 
be efficient use of the enormously 
valuable street space in Chicago. 

Other cities are successfully grap- 
pling with this problem. Ten years 
ago it required twenty-four hours 



to deliver a package from New 
York to Brooklyn. Now it requires 
only two hours. It can be shown 
that the handling of freight through 
two or three miles of city streets 
frequently costs more than five hun- 
dred miles by rail. More than one- 
half the cost of some manufactured 
articles is charged to road haulage. 
It has been estimated that the sav- 
ings of the City of Chicago through 
street traffic regulations would be 
in the neighborhood of $16,000,000 
per annum. 

Research concerns itself primar- 
ily with the following items: (a) 
quantity, character and weight of 
vehicles: (b) speed and size of 
same; (c) most used routes; (d) 
number of pedestrians using side- 
walks; (e) number and location of 
street car routes: (f) character of 
pavement; (g^ street and sidewalk 
obstructions. 

London as well as other great 
cities annually expend large sums 
of money in obtaining continuous 
statistics relative to its daily street 
traffic and these are of prime im- 
portance in the determination of 
proper municipal action. 

Valuable assistance and co-oper- 
ation have been given by Alderman 
K^jellander and the various city de- 
partments in the preparation of 
this data. Much has been secured 
from other cities. Through the able 
efforts of Mr, W. D. Wilcox and Mr. 
E. N. Fales of this department, these 
statistics have been analyzed and a 
portion of them presented in this 
report. The knowledge of this sub- 
ject which has been obtained will 
be of great value in a more com- 
plete study of conditions in this 
city. 

It is strongly recommended that 
further investigation be instituted 
f-or the purpose of regulating traf- 
fic and untangling the involved tax- 
icab rate situation in Chicago.

The following communication, 
which was, together with the re- 
port transmitted therewith, refer-

and Electric Light: 
Department of Public Service,] 
Chicago, October 5, 1914. \ 
To the Honorable Carter E. Ear- 
rison^ Mayor, and Aldermen in 
City Council Assembled: 
Gentlemen — The rules governing 
the gas and electric service fur- 
. nished in the State of Illinois, re- 
cently promulgated by the State 
Public Utilities Commission of Illi- 
nois, have caused some public 
alarm. 

For this reason, I desire to report 
to your Honorable Body that a care- 
ful examination of the rules show 
that for the present, at least, they 
will make no change in the exist- 
ing situation, owing to the saving 
clause rule. The problem of ad- 
justing rates to meet the reduced 
standard of heat value is one to be 
settled at the proper time. 

The Department of Public Serv- 
ice feels that it is entitled to a 
measure of credit for this result, as 
the changes made in the rules as 
first proposed have been largely up- 
on the suggestion of the men con- 
nected with the department who 
were present at the hearing in 
Springfield. 

The attached report sets out the 
situation more fully. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed' M. Ferry, 

Commissioner of Public Service. 
also, 
The following communication and 
report, which were ordered pub- 
lished and referred to the Commit- 
tee on Gas, Oil and Electric Light: 
Department op Public Service,] 
Chicago, October 5, 1914. f 
To the Eonorable Carter E. Ear- 
rison. Mayor, and the Aldermen 
in City Council Assembled: 
Gentlemen— I take pleasure in 



submitting herewith a report of 
the Telephone Bureau of the De- 
partment of Public Service, show- 
ing its purposes, a general survey 
of the work accomplished since its 
establishment and a discussion of 
the work now on hand. 

The Bureau has recently been re- 
organized under the direction of 
Mr. G. W. Cummings, who was ap- 
pointed City Telephone Supervisor 
under the civil service rules on Au- 
gust 21st, succeeding Mr. B. H. Peck, 
resigned. Mr. Cummings has had 
a broad and varied experience in 
practically all branches of telephone 
work during the past nineteen 
years, serving with both Bell and 
Independent Companies. 

Few men are so intimately in 
touch with telephone conditions in 
Chicago as Mr. Cummings. He is 
ably assisted by Mr. A. Kneisel, a 
well known Independent telephone 
man and patent expert, and a force 
of competent and enthusiastic m- 
spectors and investigators. 

There is no utility which touches 
the daily life of the people so in- 
timately as the telephone, and none 
which is capable of presenting more 
baffling and elusive problems. It is, 
therefore, of the utmost importance 
that the people be represented by a 
staff of disinterested experts who 
are in intimate contact with the sit- 
uation all along the line at all 
times, and in my opinion the at- 
tached report demonstrates that the 
Telephone Bureau is developing an 
organization which will accomplish 
this result. 

As a single illustration of the 
success of its efforts thus far, the 
summary of complaints at the close 
of the report shows that in 82.7 per 
cent of the cases the request of the 
complainant was granted in full, and 
in only 6.6 per cent were we unable 
to secure any concession. The lat- 
ter cases were based chiefly on mis- 
understandings which needed only 
to be explained, and there are few 
cases on record where the com-

HISTORY AND PURPOSE. 

Prior to May 26, 1913, all matters 
relating to telephone service in Chi- 
cago were cared for in the City 
Hall by the Department of Electric- 
ity, the work being performed by 
specialists detailed or employed for 
each particular question to be stud- 
ied. The need of a definite bureau 
to gather information concerning 
the local and national telephone sit- 
uation and to act in concert with 
individual telephone subscribers 
having disputes with the telephone 
companies, became pressing; and on 
that date an ordinance was passed 
by the City Council creating the 
City Telephone Bureau. 

Mr. M. Ferry was appointed City 
Telephone Supervisor and served 
until January 1, 1914, when Mr. 



Bert H. Peck took charge of the 
bureau under civil service regula- . 
tions. At this time the bureau had 
one inspector and one stenograph- 
er, and on March 9, 1914, a second 
inspector was added to the force. 

With the establishment of the 
Department of Public Service on I 
March 16, 1914, the Telephone 
Bureau was transferred to this de- 
partment, together with the Bureau 
of Local Transportation, and the 
Bureau of Inspection of Gas Meters 
and Gas, while the Bureau of Elec- 
tric Light and Power was establish- 
ed at this time. 

Mr. Ferry was appointed Com- 
missioner of Public Service on May 
11, 1914. On August 21, 1914, Mr. 
G. W. Cummings became City Tele- 
phone Supervisor, Mr. Peck having 
resigned. 

The work to be accomplished by 
the bureau has greatly increased. 
There is urgent need of additional 
help. For instance, each complaint 
against measured service billing re- 
quires the entire service of one in- 
vestigator one month, and frequent- 
ly as many as three or four of such 
investigations are in progress sim- 
ultaneously. A test of this kind is, 
of course, of no value unless it is 
continuous. In addition to its pri- 
mary purpose, such an investiga- 
tion gives valuable data on the 
quality of the service rendered in 
each case. 

The ordinance of May 26, 1913, 
which created the Telephone Bu- 
reau may properly, for analysis, be 
divided into six parts or sections. 

First: To receive and examine 
the grounds of all reasonable com- 
plaints in respect to the violation 
of any ordinance which may now 
or hereafter be in force in the City 
of Chicago, and to take such action 
for the purpose of adjusting the 
same as the circumstances and con- 
ditions may warrant. 

Many complaints have been re- 
ceived from telephone subscribers, 



October 5, 1914. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1459 



complaints which have covered the 
entire range of relations between 
the patrons and the companies. 
Many have been successfully set- 
tled by correspondence, some by ex- 
plaining away the misunderstand- 
ing- between the two, while a few 
are still pending. 

Second: The enforcing of all 
laws, ordinances and resolutions of 
the City of Chicago relative to ap- 
paratus, appliances, equipment, 
classes and kinds of service, meth- 
ods of service, operation and rates 
relating to telephone service in the 
city. The operation of plant, in- 
cluding the wires, cables, electrical 
conductors, all other equipment, the 
extensions of and additions to the 
system and new exchanges is also 
under the general scrutiny of the 
bureau. The enforcement of all 
laws, ordinances and resolutions, 
general or specific, now or hereaft- 
er in effect, in respect to the rates, 
charges, prices, tolls or other com- 
pensation or any limitation there- 
upon for each and every kind of 
telephone service furnished by any 
corporation, as well as to the basis. 



methods, manner and means of 
computing, exacting, imposing, pay- 
ing and collecting such rates, 
charges, prices and tolls or other 
compensation. 

Third: This section of the or- 
dinance makes it a part of our 
work to procure and keep in file 
copies of all rules and regulations 
affecting the public and applying 
to telephone service in the City of 
Chicago; it also provides for the 
taking of specific action regarding 
such of these rules and regulations 
as may seem unjust or unreason- 
able in their effects on the tele- 
phone using public. 

Fourth. To collect and compile 
information and data relating to 
matters connected with the fur- 
nishing of telephone service in 
Chicago and other cities. We have 
secured not only information from 
parts of South America, Europe and 
Africa, but also much of value con- 
cerning our local service. As a 
sample of the work accomplished 
along this line the following table 
of rates in force in typical cities 
Ihroughoutthe world is given.

Another field of work for the Bu- 
reau which has developed since its 
organization is the study now be- 
ing made of the telephone service 
of the city. This study embraces 
the checking of the class, the loca- 
tion, and the amount ;of service 
now being furnished to the City of 
Chicago by the local telephone com- 
panies. Upon the completion of 
this study the data gathered will 
be catalogued and two card indexes 
made^ one a numerical file showing 
all the telephone stations together 
with the equipment there, and its 
cost to the ciy, and a second with 
the cards subdivided showing the 
amount and cost of the service of 
each of the city departments. 

In addition to the value of this 
study to the City Council or any 
committee therefrom, its value as 
an aid in determining the maximum 
telephone efficiency of the city de- 
partments is continually apparent. 

New contracts and requests for 



moves and changes affecting tele- 
phone lines subscribed for by the 
City of Chicago are also handled 
by an inspector of the Bureau, 
thereby making all communications 
of this sort between the City and 
the Telephone Company converge to 
one point, the City Telephone Bu- 
reau. The advantage of this cen- 
tralization is apparent when con- 
sidering the financial saving to the 
city affected during the past sis 
months, as well as the saving in 
time due to a systematic routine. 

THE AUTOMATIC TELEPHONE SYSTEM. 

The history of the automatic tele- 
phone in the City of Chicago has up 
to the present time sho^\m several 
changes in ownership. The original 
franchise granted to the Illinois 
Telephone & Telegraph Co. in 1809 
gave them permission to build a 
tunnel and a telephone system 
which was to have two thousand 
bona fide subscribers within five 
years. In 1903 the time was ex- 



October 5. 1914. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1461 



tended by amendment of the ordi- 
nance to 1909 conditional on the 
company's securing twenty thou- 
sand subscribers by that time. In 
1909 another time extension was 
granted upon the condition that the 
Illinois Tunnel Company (the suc- 
cessor of the Illinois Telephone and 
Telegraph Company) have twenty 
thousand subscribers in operation 
by June 1, 1911, and maintain that 
number of bona fide subscribers 
continual ly thereafter. Recently 
the telephone property of the Illi- 
nois Tunnel Company passed into 
the hands of the Chicago Utilities 
Company for $5,000,000.00. 

We find that the telephone direc- 
tory, number thirteen, issued by 
the Illinois Telephone and Tele- 
graph Company in February 1914, 
contains 24,612 names. This is not 
the number of bona fide subscrib- 
ers for it includes repetitions such 
as one telephone number having 
several listings. Under the letter 
"C" there are listed 2720 numbers 
and a very casual inspection of the 
numbers in this portion of the di- 
rectory discloses over sixty repeti- 
tions without reference to any oth- 
er portion of the book; and in ad- 
dition to these repetitions, thirty 
telephones are listed under one cor- 
poration which has ceased to exist 
since the directory was issued. 
Just how many of the 24,612 num- 
bers listed remain after all repeti- 
tions are eliminated, we are not 
prepared to state at the present 
time; nor have we completed our 
investigations to ascertain what 
per cent of them are bona fide sub- 
scribers. 

The attempt to sell the property 
of the former Illinois Tunnel Co. 
has not thus far been entirely suc- 
cessful, and the Telephone Bureau 
again calls attention to the recom- 
mendations in its report made May 
19, 1914, (17th Annual Report, De- 
partment Gas and Electricity, Chi- 
cago, 111.) 

CONCLUSIONS. 

"It is believed that for the best 



interests of the telephone users in 
Chicago, should the sale of this en- 
tire property to the American Tele- 
phone & Telegraph Company be con- 
summated, that only that portion of 
this property be taken over by the 
Chicago Telephone Company as will 
be useful for the balance of its nat- 
ural life in connection with that 
company's plant, and then only at 
its present physical valuation. 

The Chicago Telephone Company 
should not assume the burden of 
paying interest, depreciation and 
maintenance charges on property 
which it could not use at present, 
but which it is believed might ulti- 
mately become useful. The burden 
would thus eventually be shifted 
upon telephone users of Chicago. 
Should such property ever become 
useful to them, it should be pur- 
chased by the company at its then 
present value as approved by the 
city or by the Public Service Com- 
mission. Also, it is further believ- 
ed that rather than allowing any 
capitalization of the tunnel rights 
at the present time, that a valua- 
tion of same be made at the time 
when the Chicago Telephone Com- 
pany desires the use thereof, either 
by the city or by the Public Serv- 
ice Commission, and the rights leas- 
ed to the telephone company on 
that basis." 

PATENTS. 

Rumors have reached the Bureau 
that the Bell organization has ac- 
quired either the shop rights or the 
entire title to the following auto- 
matic patents: 
Automatic Telephone Co., Urbana, 

Ohio $75,000.00 

Stromberg-Carlson Tel. Mfg. Co., 

Rochester, N. Y $250,000.00 

Kellogg Switchboard & Supply Co.- 

Chicago, III $250,000.00 

North Electric Co. and Tel. Im- 
provement Co., Faller Aut. Tel. 

Ex. Co $375,000.00 

Lorimer-Lundquist Co., $650,000.00 

If these rumors are true, this 
practically gives the Bell interests 



1462 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



October 5, 1914. 



a monopoly of the entire automatic 
telephone field provided that they 
succeed in securing the co-opera- 
tion of the Automatic Electric Co. 
Consequently, we believe that these 
rumors should be carefully investi- 
gated, so that, if found true, such 
action may be taken as the cir- 
cumstances may require. 

The Western Electric Co. several 
years ago installed a semi-auto- 
matic exchange in its building at 
463 West street, New York City, to 
test under actual conditions, the 
system developed by its engineers; 
and is installing a commercial semi- 
automatic exchange in Newark, N. 
J., at the present time. Considering 
the many years that the Western 
Electric Co. has experimented with 
automatic telephony and the length 
of time it has owned or controlled 
automatic patents which have pro- 
vided commercial successes, it is 
not surprising that the average tele- 
phone subscriber is losing patience 
with their seemingly dilatory meth- 
ods. 

The Frank B. Cook Co., a corpor- 
ation of Chicago, has just complet- 
ed the installation of a Traffic Dis- 
tributing system at Fort Wayne, 
Tnd., which may prove applicable to 
many manual exchanges now in 
service. In this system a subscrib- 
er in calling is connected to an idle 
cord which was pre-seleoted. This 
eliminates many operations of the 
present practice. The results at 
this exchange will be carefully 
watched and data will be secured 
for our files. 

The Telephone Improvement Co. 
is installing an automanual or semi- 
automatic system at Lima, 0., 
which is designed according to in- 
ventrions made since the Western 
Electric Company's purchase of this 
company's shop rights about Janu- 
ary 1, 1912, and these inventions 
are not under the control of the 
Bell interests. In this system a 
calling subscriber selects an idle 
operator instantly by removing his 



receiver and then gives the desired 
number to her. The operator sets 
up this number on a keyboard 
similar to that of an adding ma- 
chine, after which automatic 
switches complete the work of con- 
necting the calling and called sub- 
scribers, leaving the operator free 
to care for other calls in the 
meantime. The principal differ- 
ence in operation between the 
automanual system and the auto- 
maiic system used by the Illinois 
Telephone and Telegraph Co. is that 
in the former an operator by practi- 
cally one movement eliminates all 
the dialing which is done by the 
subscriber in the automatic system. 
The system covered by automanual 
patents now licensed to the Bell in- 
terests are at present in operation 
at Ashtabula, 0., Warren, 0., Gon- 
neaut, O., Greensburg, Ind., Gales- 
burg, 111., and Hood River, Ore., and 
are proved commercial successes. 
At Warren, 0., the actual cost of 
operating has been reduced from 
over $2.00 per 1,000 calls to 36 
cents per 1,000 calls. As the most 
promising solution of the problem 
of better and cheaper service ap- 
pears to be some method either 
automanual, traffic distributing or 
automatic telephony, an immense 
volume of work lies before the Bu- 
reau in gathering statistics and 
facts for the benefit of telephone 
subscribers in Chicago. 

Interconnection Between Companies. 

In this connection the most se- 
rious problem which presses for so- 
lution is the proposed sale of the au- 
tomatic property in Chicago to the 
Bell interests. In view of the in- 
tricacy of the situation and the 
ever present possibility of fresh 
developments, the bureau does not 
wish to impair its usefulness as an 
impartial adviser by prejudging 
the case; but would suggest that in 
addition to the solutions chiefly pro- 
posed thus far — viz. : outright sale, 
independent operation as in the 
past, or municipal ownership and

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1 4(33 



operation, — there are at least two 
other possibilities. The arguments 
for competition and those against 
duplication might perhaps be re- 
conciled by separate ownership and 
operation with interconnection be- 
tween the two companies concerned 
or. if the contention that the auto- 
matic property is forfeited to the 
City be sustained, but it should not 
be thought advisable for the City to 
operate it at present, a plan simi- 
lar to that followed in the case of 
the New York Subway might be 
feasible; that is, to lease it to a pri- 
vate company for operating pur- 
poses. 

Cost of Service: 

While the cost of telephone serv- 
ice by the manual system was well 
established by the investigation 
which resulted in the rate revision 
last year, similar data which would 
enable us to make a close estimate 
of the probable cost of furnishing 
adequate automatic service under 
Chicago conditions is not now 
available to the bureau. 

A pamphlet issued by an organi- 
zation called the "Penny Phone 
League" has come to the notice of 
the bureau, but as the pamphlet is 
quite recent, we have not thus far 
had the opportunity to investigate 
its claims. According to an aritcle 
in the Daily News of September 
17th, 700,000 copies of this pam- 
phlet have been mailed to the voters 
of Chicago. A petition to the Board 
of Election Commissioners request- 
ing that the question of municipal 
ownership of telephone systems be 
brought before the voters of Chi- 
cago at the regular election the first 
I Tuesday in April, 1915, is being cir- 
culated by the "Penny Phone 
League." A copy of the heading of 
this petition is inserted herewith. 
"To the Board of Election Commis- 
sioners, City of Chicago: 
"Gentlemen — We, the under- 
signed, registered voters of the City 
of Chicago, respectfully petition 
that the following question of pub- 



lic policy be submitted to the voters 
of the City of Chicago at the regu- 
lar election to be held in and for 
the said City of Chicago on the 
first Tuesday of April, 1915: 

"Shall the City of Chicago pro- 
ceed to acquire the ownership 
and possession of the plant and 
equipment for telephone purpos- 
es of the Illinois Telephone and 
Telegraph Company, pursuant to 
the terms and provisions of an 
ordinance passed by the Citv 
Council of the City of Chicago, 
February 20th, 1899, and June 
28th, 1909, which is as follows: 

" 'It shall be expressly the con- 
dition of this grant that if the Illi- 
nois Telephone & Telegraph Com- 
pany, or any o^ its successor's or 
assigns, shall either sell out to or 
enter into any agreomeni with any 
existing telephone company, or aniy 
of its successors, or assigns, doing 
business in the City of Chicp.go, 
which agreement would tend to 
make competition inoperative, this 
ordinance shall become null and 
void, and the plant of said company, 
together with the conduits, wires 
and poles then in the streets be- 
longing to said company, shall be 
forfeited to the city.' 

" 'If the said Illinois Tunnel 
Company, its successors and assigns, 
shall fail to construct, equip and in- 
stall a telephone system, under the 
terms of said ordinance of Febru- 
ary 20. 1899, adequate for the serv- 
ice of twenty thousand (20,000) sub- 
scribers, prior toJune 1,1911, or if, 
at any time after said June 1, 1911. 
the said Illinois Tunnel Company, 
its successors and assigns, shall not 
have in operation or shall cease to 
operate a telephone system serving 
twenty thousand (20,000) bona fide 
subscribers, then, and in each such 
case, said Illinois Tunnel Company, 
its successors and assigns, shall 
forfeit to said City, or to any li- 
cense or grantee of said City, all 
rights acquired under the said or- 
dinance of February 20, 1899, to-

gether with its plant and equipment 
for telephone purposes, and shall 
forthwith turn over the ownership 
and possession of said plant and 
equipment to said City, or to any 
licensee or grantee of said City.' " 

Automatic Telephone Territory: 

When considering the automatic 
situation the fact must not be over- 
looked that the present plant can 
be considered only as the nucleus of 
a complete system, as sho\ATi by the 
chart below; and the cost of extend- 
ing it to cover 200 square miles of 
Chicago is an item requiring the 
most serious consideration. 

FREE SERVICE. 

The State Gommisison has re- 
cently ruled that a telephone com- 
pany cannot furnish free service; 
with the provision, however, that 
this ruling shall not affect previous 
contractual relations between a 
company and a municipality. This 
proviso apparently safeguards the 
right to free City Hall service now 
enjoyed by Chicago, but the check 
up of City telephones now being 
made will safeguard our interests 
in this respect. 

AGENCY CONTRACTS. 

An opinion was submitted by City 
Corporation Counsel W. H. Sexton 
bearing upon the question whether 
the Chicago Telephone Company is 
violating its ordinance in furnish- 
ing the DN (Druggist Nickel) and 
PN (Public Nickel) classes of serv- 
ice and whether a difference in the 
percentage paid to agents under 
contracts for these classes of serv- 
ice, on account of a more or less 
favorable location, constitutes a vi- 
olation of the ordinance. The Law 
Department is of the opinion that 
the DN and PN classes of service 
rendered are not in violation of the 
ordinance and that a difference in 
percentage paid to agents accord- 
ing to more or less favorable loca- 
tion is not a discrimination in vio- 
lation of the ordinance. 



HOEFER SERVICE. 

Below is quoted the Bureau's re- 
port of June 21, 1914, to the Com- 
mittee on Gas, Oil and Electric 
Light, Hon. Lewis D. Sitts, Chair- 
man: 

"June 21, 1914. 

"To the Committee on Gas^ Oil and 

Electric Light, Honorable Lewis 

D. Sitts, Chairman. 

"GentlExVien — In response to 
your request for a report as to 
whether the so-called Hoefer meth- 
od of operating nickel telephones, 
being substituted by the Chicago 
Telephone Company in place of the 
old Nickel First and Nickel Last 
methods, is an improvement, I sub- 
mit the following statement: 

"It is my opinion based upon the 
results of tests made of both the 
Hoefer method and Nickel Last 
method, and from the opinion of 
subscribers with whom this matter 
has been discussed, that the Hoefer 
method is an improvement over the 
Nickel Last method in the follow- 
ing respects: 

1. "Under the Hoefer method the 
subscriber's nickel is not deposited 
by the operator during conver- 
sation. Under the old Nickel Last 
method, the nickel was deposited by 
the operator as soon as the sub- 
scriber started to talk to the party 
whom he called. This operation 
caused an interruption to the sub- 
scriber's conversation accompanied 
by severe noises in his ear, which 
were disagreeable and a source of 
annoyance. 

2. "There is less possibility of 
the Telephone Company taking the 
subscriber's nickel unjustly under 
the Hoefer method than under the 
old Nickel Last method when the 
old Nickel Last method is operated 
in accordance with the regulations 
of the Company and the Ordinance 
which requires that the nickel be 
deposited immediately upon the re- 
quest of the operator. 

3. "The Hoefer method should 



October 5, 1914. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1465 



reduce the possibility of interfer- 
ence by other parties on party lines 
due to the fact that the cashing of 
a nickel by an operator will fre- 
quently cause other bells upon the 
circuit to jingle, and thereby notify 
parties desiring to listen to conver- 
sations, that the circuit is in use. 
Under the Hoefer method, since the 
nickel is not deposited until the sub- 
scriber has finished his conversa- 
tion, this notification to other sub- 
scribers does not allow them to ma- 
liciously interrupt the conversa- 
tions. 

4. "It is of advantage to subscri- 
bers to have the telephone service 
in the city standardized so far as 
possible, as this will prevent con- 
fusion in the operation of the serv- 
ice. 

5. "The Hoefer method will re- 
duce the number of discussions 
with the operator regaring the de- 
posit of a nickel, due to the fact 
that under the old Nickel Last 
method it was necessary for the 
operator to listen in, and if the con- 
versation was started, deposit the 
nickel. It was then necessary for 
her to remember that the nickel 
had been collected on this call in 
order to avoid making a second re- 
quest. Also the signals which she 
received showing that the nickel 
has been deposited by the subscri- 
ber, were not as plain, and more 
likely to cause an error upon her 
part than the signals under the 
Hoefer method. 

"The disadvantages of the Hoefer 
method from subscribers' stand- 
point are : 

1. "Under the old Nickel Last 
method the subscriber was able to 
withhold his nickel until he had 
been placed in comunication with 
the called party, although to do so 
was contrary to the regulations of 
the Company and the letter of the 
Ordinance. Under the Hoefer meth- 
od the subscriber is not able to do 
this, 

2. "Under the Hoefer method the 



operator does not request the sub- 
scriber to deposit a nickel at the 
time the call is made. We have re- 
ceived very few complaints from 
subscribers regarding this feature, 
and we do not believe it is a seri- 
ous disadvantage, since the instruc- 
tions for operating the telephone 
are placed upon the coin box. It is 
possible, however, in some cases it 
would tend to cause confusion. 

"It is my opini-on that the advant- 
ages offered to the subscriber by 
the Hoefer method of operation 
outweigh the disadvantages, and 
that the Hoefer method is an im- 
provement over the old Nickel Last 
method of operating coin box serv- 
ice. 

"It is my opinion that the Hoefer 
method is an improvement over the- 
Nickel First method of operation 
since the subscriber is able to se- 
cure the attention of the operator 
without first depositing a nickel." 

This report is the result of an ex- 
tensive investigation covering a pe- 
riod of several months. During 
this period about a thousand sub- 
scribers who had used this service 
were questioned as to whether or 
I not they found it an improvement. 
Also extensive field service tests 
were made comparing this service 
to that of "nickel last" and "nickel 
first." 

MOVING CHARGE. 

In the Bureau's monthly report of 
December 31, 1913, a question was 
raised relative to the Chicago Tele- 
phone Company making a flat 
charge of $5.00 for each and every 
move. 

After taking this matter up at 
considerable length with the tele- 
phone company, the Bureau con- 
vinced them that such action is un- 
just in some cases and the company 
has agreed that hereafter the 
charge for moving a telephone 
shall be on the basis of actual ex- 
pense, not to exceed S5.00. This 



1466

will effect a material saving to tele- 
phone subscribers in the future. 

SERVICE STANDARDS. 

Service Tests: 

Since March 1st, 1914, the Bureau 
has completed about five thousand 
field service tests, throughout the 
citv in order to determine the act- 
ual quality of the service furnished 
bv the telephone company. Al- 
though we have gained a fair idea 
of the service in this way, the 
number of tests made is entirely 
inadequate to accomplish the de- 
sired result. There are at present 
twenty-nine telephone exchanges 
in the city, and in order to get fair 
results we should have not less than 
four hundred tests each month in 
each exchange or a total of about 
twelve thousand test calls. These 
test calls are only made on regular 
test cases. Test calls made on com- 
plaints should not be and have not 
been included in the regular sur- 
vey work. The importance of mak- 
ing these test calls is obvious; if 
this survey is not made constantly, 
the bureau can not be in a position 
from its own reports to know how 
well the standard of service in Chi- 
cago is being maintained. The fact 
that any individual or several in- 
dividuals have poor service does not 
prove poor service throughout the 
city. A general survey must be 
made and in order to be effective 
it must be on a broad enough scale 
to insure definite results. For this 
work alone, at least four additional 
inspectors should be added to the 
force. These men in addition to 
those on hand and those suggested 
elsewhere in this report will, with 
proper distribution, enable the bu- 
reau to carry on an active campaign 
which should prove invaluable to 
the general telephone using public. 

Measured Service Study: 

A considerable number of com- 
plaints relative to over-charge on 
measured service contracts reach 



this department about the time the 
telephone company render their 
monthly bills. In view of the fact 
that the telephone company has a 
manually controlled electric meter 
associated with each measured ser- 
vice line, it properly became a mat- 
ter for study on the part of the bu- 
reau to find out where the mistakes, 
causing disputes on this class of 
bills, were made. As a result of 
extensive studies and experiments, a 
method of tallying these calls has 
recently been developed which it is 
believed will accomplish much good 
in the future. 

This method consists in placing 
an investigator on the premises of 
the subscriber beginning on the 20th 
and continuing for one month. This 
investigator tallys and makes a 
complete record of every out-going 
call during the month. While our 
investigator is not there at night the 
telephone apparatus is locked up in 
such a manner that no one can use 
it. In this way we have a detailed 
record of every out-going call made 
on these line's. The bureau has 
further plans which it hopes to de- 
velop so that these tests, whereby 
measured service calls are tallied 
without the telephone company's 
knowledge, can be made with con- 
siderable less expense than at pres- 
ent. However, efficiency in this re- 
gard will not be sacrificed to econ- 
omy. 

By means of statements in the 
daily papers, the attention of the 
public has been called to the fact 
that they were not taking full ad- 
vantage of the reduction of tele- 
phone rates as provided for in an 
ordinance passed by the City Coun- 
cil May 26, 1913. A new class of 
single line measured rate business 
service requiring a guarantee of 960 
calls or $48.00 per year was insti- 
tuted, whereas the lowest similar 
rate previously available was one 
of 1.200 calls or $60.00. It was es- 
timated that 49 percent of the sub- 
scribers to the old service would 
give it up for the new but up to 



October 5, 1914. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1467 



date only about three quarters of 
this percentage have taken advan- 
tage of this reduction. 

Similarly a new class of single 
party measured rate residence ser- 
vice was placed on the market re- 
quiring a guarantee of 800 meas- 
sages of $40.00 a year. This rate 
could be taken advantage of by 
many who now pay either $72.00 or 
$56.00 a year on flat rate service 
but who really do not make heavy 
use of their telephones. The same 
situation applies to subscribers to 
two-party line nickel service who 
use their phone considerably in ex- 
cess of their guarantee and sufficient 
to warrant their changing to a sin- 
gle nickel line. At that time it was 
estimated that there were 3,200 sub- 
scribers who could take advantage 
of these rates and thus make a sav- 
ing of $50,000.00 a year to the pub- 
lic. 

The question as to whether the 
Illinois Telephone & Telegraph Go. 
is violating the terms of its fran- 
chise by allowing music service to 
be transmitted over their wires by 
allowing an improved transmitting 
attachment to be used in connection 
therewith was brought up in a com- 
plaint made by a prominent news 
bureau which i:frotested that the 
music interferred with the news 
service. After carefully ascertain- 
ing the facts and obtaining legal 
opinions from both parties, the mat- 
ter was submitted to the Corpora- 
tion Counsel who has held that 
there is no violation. The company, 
however, discontinued the music 
service. 

Beduction of Force: 

A recent development, and one 
which the public are viewing with 
some apprehension, is the reduction 
in the operating force of the Chi- 
cago Telephone Company. If the 
number of operators per thousand 
calls is reduced, it is obvious that 
the service will suffer; and the bu- 
reau is keenly alive to this possi- 
bility. It is a matter of general 



knowledge that in August of this 
year the Chicago Telephone Com- 
pany did reduce its operating force. 
A few girls were released and a 
large number were laid off one day 
per week. We have asked the tele- 
phone company for exact figur<-^ 
along this line but have not as yet 
received them. As nearly as can be 
estimated from the information at 
hand, the actual traffic decreased 
steadily for four months up to Sep- 
tember, after which an increase is 
recorded. If this increase m trafnc 
is not met by a corresponding in- 
crease in the operating force, ser- 
vice must necessarily deteriorate, 
and the bureau is in immediate 
touch with this situation to safe- 
guard the interests of the public m 
the matter. The chart inserted here- 
with, diagramatically illustrates the 
traffic of the telephone company 
since Jan. 1, 1914. 

Since the peg counts from which 
this chart is plotted are made by 
the telephone company, it is ob- 
viously desirable to examine mta 
the reasonableness of these figures. 
It is a well known fact that tele- 
phone traffic is exceedingly respon- 
sive to change in business or social 
conditions. A sudden crisis, such as 
an Iroquois fire or a Stock Ex- 
change flurry, brings an enormous 
rush of calls; while a general de- 
pression is accurately reflected by a 
corresponding depression m the 
traffic. For several months past the 
amount of business transacted has 
in general been far below normal, 
and this unsatisfactory situation has 
been strongly accentuated by the 
European war. The Stock Exchange 
has been closed, and the department 
stores and other mercantile houses 
have reduced their forces sharply, 
in an effort to conserve resources 
and avoid more serious trouble. In 
view of this situation it appears 
reasonable to suppose that the tele- 
phone traffic would show a general 
decrease substantially as claimed. 
There is always, however, the 
possibility that a legitimate reason 



4468

October 5, 1914.1 




o£PT. OF nm saw:

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1469 



may be expanded into an excuse; 
and the service tests of the tele- 
phone bureau are the surest safe- 
guard against any attempt to reduce 
the operating force to a point which 
would actually impair the service. 
Coincident with the traffic reduc- 
tion, we find a similar reduction in 
the plant force, where the same 
method of one day per week lay-off 
has been followed. An analysis of 
this situation shows that the reduc- 
tion is confined entirely to the con- 
struction department. The mainte- 
nance department, whose duty it is 
to keep the lines and equipment in 
working order, has not been affect- 
ed: and the school is working full 
time in promoting the efficiency of 
the installers, repairmen, and cen- 
tral affice men. The maintenance 
work is obviously of the greatest 
' immediate importance, and the in- 
formation at hand shows no tend- 
ency to lower the standards there. 
While the work of the traffic de- 
partment is almost a direct function 
of the calling rate, and their force 
therefore very properly fluctuates 
with the load; the maintenance 
work is more nearly related to the 
number of stations, and as past ex- 
perience indicates that station 
growth persists to some extent even 
in periods of business depression, 
it is obvious that no reduction of 
the maintenance force could be 
justified. The difficulties in secur- 
ing exact data along this line are 
evident, but the telephone bureau, 
through the handling of complaints, 
meeting the public in its service 
tests and measured service studies, 
and in many other ways, is in a 
position to keep in intimate touch 
with the situation and safeguard 
the interests of the public. 

The reduction of the construction 
force affects the service in two dis- 
tinct ways. The most direct way is 
in the installation work, where it 
means that a smaller number of 
men are available for new instal- 
lations, moves and changes. While 
some complaints have been received 



along this line, and the situation 
might easily hecome a serious one, 
it is undoubtedly true that many 
people who would otherwise sub- 
scribe for the service have been de- 
terred by the business depression, 
and there are consequently less or- 
ders to be completed. Our investi- 
gations thus far indicate that in 
general the time of completion of 
orders has not materially suffered 
from the reduction of force. 

A situation of more far-reaching 
importance, although attracting less 
immediate attention from the pub- 
lic, is found in the construction 
work proper. Here the general 
financial stringency has been as- 
signed as the reason for two dis- 
tinct retrenchment moves this year. 
Last April many important improve- 
ments and extensions to the plant 
were held up, and while this work 
was resumed to some extent during 
the Summer, the recent reduction in 
the force has again crippled it. 
While in this the telephone company 
is probably only following the cue 
of all other lines of business at 
present, the situation is unfortu- 
nate, because it means that orders 
are held up on account of lack of 
facilities or completed in a tempo- 
rary manner which ultimately in- 
volves an excessive investment per 
station and more or less impair- 
ment to the service. A typical il- 
lustration of this is the stringing of 
a number of twisted pair wires to 
reach individual subscribers who 
would be better and more economi- 
cally served by cable. 

NEIGHBORHOOD SERVICE. 

Several complaints have been re- 
ceived which would seem to indi- 
cate that from the subscriber's 
viewpoint, the Chicago telephone 
company is trying to abolish Neigh-^ 
borhood rates by furnishing service 
of such inferior quality as to force 
him to change to city rates. 

Also from complaints of city ser- 
vice subscribers, living in neighbor- 
hood exchanges, word has come to

us that the telephone company is 
discouraging Neighborhood rates, in 
that, when applications are made 
for this service, the telephone com- 
pany will almost invariably recom- 
mend some city class of service 
rather than Neighborhood service. 

Recently another event occurred 
which seems to strengthen the gen- 
eral impression as stated above. The 
new Irving Exchange was opened on 
Augusts, 1914, with two units, viz.: 
— Irving and Monticello, both oper- 
ating practically within the bound- 
aries of the former Irving territory. 
When this exchange was put into 
operation those subscribers having 
an Irving prefix and Neighborhood 
service on calling a subscriber with 
the new Monticello prefix were 
charged the regular five (5c.) cent 
toll as they would be to any other 
part of the city. This sudden change 
in rates made a material difference 
to the subscribers to this class of 
service and has resulted in already 
causing applications to be made for 
city service, several of which have 
come to our notice. The attitude 
of a complainant is not surprising 
when it is considered that he re- 
alizes Neighborhood service to be the 
lowest priced available, being un- 
limited within a certain boundary 
or neighborhood; and not a strictly 
prepayment service although the 
bills are due monthly in advance; 
that this class of service involves 
book-keeping which is an additional 
expense, and thait the collections 
are slower than in the city service 
where the coin must be deposited 
at the time a call is made. Natur- 
ally he does not feel that the tele- 
phone company is enthusiastically 
in favor of Neighborhood service. 

There being an ordinance which 
compels the Chicago Telephone 
Company to grant Neighborhood 
service in certain localities; if the 
above statements and beliefs are 
well founded, then the above might 
be construed as a violation of the 
city ordinance. 

Therefore, to positively prove or 



disprove these assertions and be- 
liefs an extensive investigation is 
necessary. This investigation will 
involve not only service tests from 
and to these telephones but also a 
thorough survey of the boundary 
lines within which this service is 
granted by ordinance. 

To make these tests in a man- 
ner that will prove them efficient, 
it will be necessary that several in- 
vestigators be detailed to this work 
alone. The tests cannot be strung 
along over a long period of time 
because of the continual shift of the 
operating force. Also, in order to 
get a fair representation of the to- 
tal number of calls made in a given 
district the bureau must make a 
large number of tests each day. 
This will mean that a force of at 
least six investigators or inspec- 
tors be detailed on this phase of 
the investigation alone. (This means 
six more men than the four called 
for above, in addition to those in the 
bureau now.) The men will be re- 
quired to go to the territory in- 
volved and conduct a series of out- 
going test calls from Neighborhc;od 
subscribers' telephones, at the same 
time arranging with said subscrib- 
ers to make incoming test calls to 
them from other Neighborhood sta- 
tions. 

After these results are compiled 
for a period of about three months 
the bureau should have sufficient 
data on hand from which to judge 
the traffic over the lines of the sub- 
scribers having this service, and be 
in a position to determine whether 
or not the telephone company is 
rendering as good service over 
these lines as over any other. 

ROUTINE OF COMPLAINTS. 

When telephone complaints are 
mailed to the department of Public 
Service by a telephone subscriber 
they are received by Commissioner 
Ferry personally, and referred to 
Mr. Cummings. All these com- 
plaints are carefully considered by 
him to determine the advisability

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

of a Held investigation by the 
Bureau before taking other action, 
such as ordering a thorough in- 
vestigation of all the telephone 
company records pertaining to said 
complaint. The bureau also noti- 
fies the telephone company that 
they received said complaint and 
secures their version of it. 

If the complaint has already been 
cared for by the company to the 
full satisfaction of the subscriber, 
which fact is ascertained by calling 
the subscriber on the telephone, 



the matter naturally requires no 
further attention on the part of the 
Bureau and the records on the 
complaint are closed. 

Many telephone complaints are 
received over the telephone and 
others are made by the subsciiber 
calling in person. These com- 
plaints are referred to Mr. Cum- 
mings. City Telephone Super- 
visor, and thereafter follow (ho 
same routine as the complaints re- 
ceived by mail.

tween the points hereinbefore de- 
scribed shall be so graded that after 
being thoroughly puddled and 
rolled with a roller of ten (10) tons 
weight until the roadbeds are thor- 
oughly compacted, and after the 
pavement hereinafter described 
shall have been placed thereon, the 
surface of the pavement at the cen- 
ter of the finished roadway of each 
of said above specified streets and 
the center of the finished roadways 
of all intersecting streets extended 
from the curb line to the street line 
- produced on each side of each of 
said above specified streets shall co- 
incide with the established grade of 
said above specified streets, herein- 
before described; and the surface of 
the said finished roadways at the

lished grade; and the surface of the 
finished roadways at the catch - 
basin inlets in the gutters adjoining 
the roadway face of the curb shall 
be ten (10) inches below said es- 
tablished grade. 

The slope of the gutters adjoin- 
ing the roadway face of said curb 
shall be uniform from the summits 
to the catchbasins, and a transverse 
section of the finished surface of 
the pavement and gutters shall be 
an arc of a circle passing through 
the said gutter grades and the grade 
of the center of each of said finish- 
ed roadways, at every part of the 
roadway of each of said above spec- 
. ified streets and at every part of 
the roadways of all streets inter- 
secting the several streets specified 
above between the points hereinbe- 
for described. 

In all intrsecting alleys herein- 
before specified at the street lines 
produced of said above specified 
streets, the surface of the finished 
pavement adjoining the curb shall 
be even with the top of the curb 



and the surface of the finished 
pavement at the center of the road- 
way of said alleys shall be three 
(3) inches below the top of the 
curb; and a transverse section of 
the finished surface of the pave- 
ment at the street lines produced of 
said above specified streets shall be 
an arc of a circle passing through 
the said curb grade and the grade 
of the center of said finished road- 
ways. The surface of the said 
pavement thence shall slope grad- 
ually to meet the gutters herein- 
before specified. 

Upon the roadbeds thus prepared 
between said points and between 
said gutters shall be spread a layer 
of Portland cement concrete six (6) 
inches in thickness. Said cement 
shall be so ground that ninety-two 
(92) per cent, will pass through a 
standard number one hundred 
(100) sieve having ten thousand 
(10,000) meshes per square inch. 

Briquettes made from a mortar 
composed of one (1) part said Port- 
land cement and three (3) parts 
torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of 
limestone screenings, free from 
dirt, dust and other impurities, ex- 
posed to the air for one (1) day and 
immersed in water for six (6) days, 
shall develop an ultimate tensile 
strength of two liundred (200) 
pounds per square inch. 

One (1) part cement which shall 
stand the above test and comply 
with the above requirements, and 
three (3) parts of torpedo sand, or 
three (3) parts of limestone screen- 
ings, free from dirt, dust and other 
impurities, shall be thoroughly 
mixed dry and then made into a 
mortar with the least possible 
amount of water. 

Six (6) parts of the best quality 
of slag, limestone, or other stone 
which shall be equal in quality for

or stone shall be thoroughly 
cleaned, free from all foreign sub- 
stances and drenched with water, 
shall then be incorporated imme- 
diately with the mortar. Each 
batch of concrete shall be thor- 
oughly mixed and at once spread 
upon the surface of said roadbeds 
and thoroughly compacted by ram- 
ming until free mortar appears on 
the surface. The surface of said 
layer of concrete shall be parallel 
with and two and one-half (2%") 
inches below the top of the finished 
pavement. 

Upon the concrete foundation as 
above specified shall be laid a bind- 
er course, composed of asphaltic ce- 
ment and gravel or clean broken 
limestone crusher run and of vary- 
ing sizes which will pass through 
a ring of three-fourths (%) inch 
internal diameter. 

The gravel or stone shall be heat- 
ed and thoroughly mixed with the 
asphaltic cement in the proportions 
of six (6) parts by weight of as- 
phaltic cement and ninety-four 
(94) parts by weight of gravel or 
stone. This binder shall be spread 
on the base above described, and 
while in a hot and plastic condition 
shall be rolled until it has a uni- 
form thickness of one inch. The 
upper surface shall be exactly par- 
allel with and one and one-half 
(11/2) inches below the finished 
surface of the pavement. 

Upon this binder course shall be 
laid a wearing surface or pavement 
proper, which shall be composed of 
asphaltic cement seventeen (17) 
parts, sand seventy-three (73) 
parts, and pulverized carbonate of 
lime or pulverized silica ten (10) 
parts. The sand and asphaltic ce- 
ment shall be heated separately to 
a temperature of three hundred 
(300) degrees Fahrenheit. The pul- 
verized carbonate of lime or the 
pulverized silica shall be mixed 
with the sand and these ingredients 
then mixed with the asphaltic ce- 
ment at the above temperature in 



an apparatus which shall effect a 
perfect mixture. 

The material for pavement when 
mixed as above shall be spread at a 
temperature of two hundred and 
fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit. It 
shall be carefully spread by means 
of hot iron rakes in such manner as 
to give uniform and regular grade ^ 
to such a depth, that after having 
received its ultimate compression it 
will have a thickness of one and 
one-half (1%) inches. 

The entire surface of the road- 
ways thus improved shall then be 
compressed by hand rollers, after 
which natural hydraulic cement in 
the proportion of one (1) barrel to 
each one thousand (1,000) square 
yards of surface shall be swept over 
it, and the whole then thoroughly 
compressed by rolling with a steam 
roller of ten (10) tons weight, the 
rolling being continued for five (5) 
hours for each one thousand (1,000) 
square yards of surface. 

All asphaltum used in the mak- 
ing of the asphaltic cement for both 
the binder and the wearing surface 
shall be asphaltum obtained from 
Pitch Lake in the Island of Trini- 
dad, or asphaltum which shall be 
equal in quality for paving pur- 
poses to that obtained from Pitch 
Lake in the Island of Trinidad. 

Six (6) new brick catch-basins 
shall be constructed and connected 
and trapped with the sewer in 
South Whipple street and located 
in the roadway of said South Whip- 
ple street at necessary points adja- 
cent to the curb lines of said South 
Whipple street. 

Six (6) new brick catch-basins 
shall be constructed and connected 
and trapped with the sewer in 
South Albany avenue, and located 
in the roadway of said South Al- 
bany avenue at necessary points ad- 
jacent to the curb lines of said

measuring from the top of the 
brickwork, and shall have an inter- 
nal diameter of four feet at the 
bottom and to a plane five feet 
above and parallel therewith. The 
walls of said catch basins shall be 
eight inches thick and shall be 
built of two courses of sewer brick 
laid edgewise in perpendicular 
courses, upon a floor of pine plank 
two inches in thickness. The top 
of each of said catch basins shall 
decrease to two feet internal diam- 
eter, being drawn in by means of 
nine header courses, the diameter 
being decreased uniformly for each 
course. 

Each of said catch-basins shall 
be connected with the sewer with 
tile pipe of eight inches internal 
diameter and shall be trapped with 
a half trap also of tile pipe of 
eight inches internal diameter. The 
said trap of each of said catch- 
basins shall be set so that the ele- 
vation of the bottom of the inside 
of the same shall be three feet six 
inches above the floor of the catch 
basin.

Yeas— Keimsi, Coughlin, Harding, 
Norris, Nash, Lindheimer, Richert, 
Doyle,' Nance, Merriam, Kimball,

Lynch — 56. 

j\Jays — Powers, Latchford — 2. 

The question being put on the 
motion to pass said order, the mo- 
tion prevailed. 

The following is said order as 
passed : 

Whereas, The ordinance, passed 
February 20, 1899, granting per- 
mission and authority to the Illi- 
nois Telephone and Telegraph 
Company to install, maintain and 
operate a telephone system in the 
City of Chicago contained a pro- 
vision to the effect that, if the 
said company, its successors or 
assigns, should fail on July 1, 
1911, or on any date thereafter 
to have in operation in the City 
of Chicago a telephone system 
serving 20,000 bona fide telephone 
subscribers, the telephone rights 
and property of said company, its 
successors or assigns, would be 
subject to forfeiture by the City 
of Chicago; and 

Whereas, The Chicago Tunnel 
Company (said company having 



purchased at a Master's sale the 
rights and properties of the Illi- 
nois Tunnel Company, the as- 
signee of the rights and proper- 
ties of the Illinois Telephone and 
Telegraph Company) is now and 
has been for more than a year 
endeavoring to secure the consent 
of the City of Chicago to a sale 
of its telephone rights and prop- 
erties to the American Telegraph 
and Telephone Company, or to 
th Chicago Telephone Company^ 
a subsidiary company of the 
American Telegraph and Tele- 
phone Company, which sale 
would in all probability result in 
the discontinuance of the opera- 
tion of the automatic telephone 
system in the City of Chicago— 
a service which has proven to be 
a marked improvement over the 
manual service; and 

Whereas, The users of the 
automatic telephone service in 
Chicago, and more particularly 
those in other cities where it has 
been given city wide development, 
are convinced that the automatic 
service is inherently superior to 
the manual system. The super- 
iority in speed, accuracy and sec- 
recy is because the connection 
is made by a mechanical process 
instead of by human agency; and 
Whereas. The history of the 
companies which have operated 
respectively under the rights 
granted the Illinois Telephone and 
Telegraph Company is proof oi 
their unwillingness or inability to 
successfully develop the auto- 
matic telephone system in com^ 
petition to the manual system ot 
the Chicago Telephone Company; 
and 

Whereas, A very large number 
of citizens of Chicago are of the 
opinion that the service of the 
Chicago Telephone Company is 
grossly inadequate to the charge 
made for same, and that the auto- 
matic telephone system should be 
continued in operation to the end 



October 5, 1914.

1593 



that the telephone users of the 
City of Chicago may have a mod- 
ern service at a just charge, and 
believe that such service can best 
be supplied to them by the City 
of Chicago; and 

Whereas, It is generally be- 
lieved that the Chicago Tun- 
nel Company, now operatng un- 
der the rights granted to the Illi- 
nois Telephone and Telegraph 
Company, has not now in opera- 
tion in the City of Chicago, a 
telephone system serving 20,000 
bona fide telephone subscribers, 
and that the fact that its rights 
and properties have not been for- 
feited by the City of Chicago is 
due to the neglect of the officials 
of the City of Chicago; therefore, 
be it 

Ordered, That the Commission- 
er of Public Service be and he is 
hereby directed to at once insti- 
tute an investigation to determine 
whether the Chicago Tunnel Com- 
pany has a telephone system in 
operation in the City of Chicago 
serving 20,000 bona fide telephone 
subscribers, as required by the 
terms of the Illinois Telephone 
and Telegraph Company ordi- 
nance of February 20, 1899, and 
that he report tiie result of said 
investigation at as early a date 
as possible to the Corporation 
Counsel; and be it further . 

Ordered, That the Corporation 
Counsel be and he is hereby di- 
rected, upon the receipt of the re- 
sult of the investigation so conduc- 
ted by the Commissioner of Public 
Service, to proceed in the name 
of the City of Chicago, to forfeit 
to the City of Chicago the tele- 
phone rights and properties of 
the Chicago Tunnel Company; 
provided such action is w^arranted 
by the report of the said Commis- 
sioner of Public Service. 

Aid. CuUerton presented a claim 
of Patrick Dunleavy for wages, etc.; 
a claim of Louis Kaufman for a re- 
fund of water rates, and a claim 



of Frank Osocha for a refund of 
fme, which were 

Referred to the Committee on

lowing orders, which were, on mo- 
tion, duly passed:
